Events & Celebrations

You want a special place for your special day. Brookview offers an intimate setting with a mid-century modern vibe and spectacular golf course and sunset views. Its central location just west of downtown Minneapolis makes it convenient to most anywhere in the metro area. Whether you are looking to host a small informal party, meeting, or a large gathering, Brookview can make your social or corporate event a reality.

The Brookview experience also offers an array of activities that can take your event to another level. Whether it’s golf, lawn bowling, or fun for the kids at our multi-level indoor playground, we can help create something memorable for you and your guests. You may even find yourself lingering afterward at our Three One Six Bar and Grill, where the drinks are cold, the food is great, and there’s something to do in all seasons.

Contact us today to discuss possibilities. We look forward to helping create a special experience for you, your family, and friends.
